THIS is how the Albion players rated after they fought to earn a point in a difficult match at St Mary's Stadium against Southampton.

Robert Sanchez - 7/10

The Albion goalkeeper was at fault for the Southampton goal as his kick upfield lacked power and accuracy, which allowed the hosts to come and take the lead. However, despite that one mistake, it was a good outing for the Spaniard who made a few crucial saves to keep Southampton at bay. In the first half, he made an incredible double save to stop both Armando Broja and Che Adams from scoring.

Tariq Lamptey - 6/10

The 21-year-old put in another solid shift but was less effective than he was during his cameo against West Ham on Wednesday night. Lamptey helped to create some dangerous moments for Albion, but was taken off by Graham Potter to help his recovery from injury.

Joel Veltman - 6/10

Had his match cut short after a nasty blow to the nose, but otherwise put in a good enough performance to help limit Nathan Tella's threat down the wing.

Shane Duffy - 6/10

A superb performance on his return to the starting line-up and was a leader in the backline. Although, he is docked points for his part in the Southampton goal, when his miscommunication allowed Armando Broja to get the ball and then was beaten by the forward's skill for the goal.

Dan Burn - 7/10

The towering defender was playing in a more traditional position, in the back three. Burn made no obvious errors and helped keep the Saints at bay for most of the game.

The Argus: Marc CucurellaMarc Cucurella

Marc Cucurella - 6/10

An all-action performance from Cucurella as he was up and down the left wing throughout the game. Still adapting to the Premier League and it showed as his decision making at times during the game was questionable.

Pascal Gross - 5/10

A tough outing for Gross, he was not able to get onto the ball much and affect Albion's attacking play in the first half. The German was replaced by Aaron Connolly in the 55th minute.

Yves Bissouma - 6/10

A solid outing for Bissouma, who helped control the midfield for Albion. Bissouma also made some impressive attacking runs and almost set up Neal Maupay for a goal after going past two Saints defenders.

Enock Mwepu - 6/10

Really impressive energy from Mwepu, who helped Albion at both ends of the pitch. Mwepu came close to scoring but was denied by a good save from Alex McCarthy in the first half.

Leandro Trossard - 6/10

The Belgian international was a bright spark for Albion in the first half and was unlucky not to score if not for a good save from McCarthy. The game, however, ended badly for Trossard as he was stretchered off with an elbow injury.

The Argus: Neal Maupay was the highest scorer in the game against SouthamptonNeal Maupay was the highest scorer in the game against Southampton

Neal Maupay - 8/10

Once again the man on target. Maupay had a good game and perhaps should have scored more than once, but like Trossard and Mwepu was denied by McCarthy. Undeterred Maupay showed his commitment and kept going and was rewarded with another late equaliser for the team.

Subs - Solly March - 6/10

March replaced Lamptey and did his job dutifully. The winger helped Albion press up the pitch towards the end of the game and keep his side on the front foot.

Jakub Moder - 6/10

Was on as a late substitute for Veltman and added some fresh legs to a midfield that was starting to tire. Moder also assisted Maupay's goal with a poor volley at goal, but it made the difference.

Aaron Connolly - 6/10

The Irish striker put in a good shift when he came on for Albion. He did almost set up an equaliser for Neal Maupay after he put the ball across to the Frenchman, although he possibly would have been better off shooting himself, a sign of a lack of match sharpness.
